Here, and also south of us, the beaches have a yellow tint, but along the Keys of Florida the sand is like shattered ivory. (from the first line)
Hailed by the "New York Times" as "wildly ambitious" and "the sort of book that a young Herman Melville might have written had he lived today and studied such disparate works as the Bible, ''The Wasteland, '' "Fahrenheit 451, " and "Dog Soldiers, " screened "Star Wars" and "Apocalypse Now" several times, dropped a lot of acid and listened to hours of Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones," "Fiskadoro" is a stunning novel of an all-too-possible tomorrow. Deeply moving and provacative, "Fiskadoro" brilliantly presents the sweeping and heartbreaking tale of the survivors of a devastating nuclear war and their attempts to breaking tale of the survivors of a devastating nuclear war and their attempts to salvage remnants of the old world and rebuild their culture.
From the Publisher:
After nuclear war ravages their land, survivors must collect remnants of the old world and rebuild their culture.'A mythical story. . .a coming-of-nuclear-age tale, the making of a new man from the ashes of the old world. . .a key to the conundrum at the center of the world.' -Philadelphia Inquirer
Annotation:
This post-apocalyptic tale is about the survivors of a nuclear holocaust who must try to rebuild their lives amidst the rubble. In writing FISKADORO, Denis Johnson acknowledges the influence of several writers, including Bruno Bettelheim, Joseph Campbell, and Oliver Sacks.
